Cleaning Scuff Marks off a PVC Fence Cleaning Scuff Marks off a PVC Fence

What You'll Need
Latex gloves
Nose mask
Rag or towel
Water hose
Bucket
Lacquer thinner

Unsightly scuff marks on your PVC fence can be removed through regular cleaning. You cannot avoid lawn mowers hitting the fence or your pet dog from tapping it. However, you can regularly clean it by following the simple steps below.

Step 1: Clean the Fence

Wash the entire fence with water to remove loose dirt, mud and dust.

Step 2: Applying the Lacquer Thinner

While wearing the latex gloves and nose mask, pour the lacquer thinner into the bucket. Avoid any contact with the thinner while dipping the rag or towel into the bucket. Wring the rag for excess thinner.

Using your lacquer-soaked rag, scrub the scuff marks off the vinyl fence and continue doing so until the marks disappear.

Step 3: Final Rinsing

After the marks have disappeared, rinse or spray the fence with water to remove thinner residue. Excess lacquer thinner should be safely put in a lid or should be returned to its original bottle using a funnel.
